Because of this, we can achieve many different looks and styles for your floors and walls. First, let’s take a look at what abrasive sandblasting is so that you can get a better idea of what it’s all about.

Understanding Sandblasting

Sandblasting is an umbrella term used to encompass many different techniques. It involves shooting various media at very high speeds to abraid a surface. It’s excellent for removing paint, rust, dirt, and other imperfections. Sandblasting is also a crucial step in our surface preparation for protective coatings on concrete walls. For example, let’s say you plan on installing an epoxy coating to a watertank, or treatment plant in Brisbane. Before we apply the coating, the surface needs to be smooth and clear of any imperfections. Abrasive sandblasting is a great way to get the surface flawless so that it’s ready for a coating.

There are many different media or materials used in sandblasting. While its name implies that sand is the material of choice, it’s not common to use anymore. Standard media used for sandblasting include:

-Baking soda

-Garnet

-Steel grit

-Water (Hydroblasting)

-Glass beads

-Bristle blasting

-Corn cob

-Copper slags

-Ceramic grit

-Crushed glass

Each different media has its own shape, density, hardness, and more. As you can imagine, selecting the right media is crucial for your project. At My Floor, we’ve mastered the art of media selection for our sandblasting techniques. Let’s take a look at the main types of sandblasting that we specialize in the most!

Sandblasting for Protective Coating Preparation

We also use sandblasting at My Floor in our preparations for concrete coatings. Before we apply epoxy coatings, we will commonly sandblast the entire surface. This will strip away all paint, rust, dirt, and other imperfections. That way, the surface is completely exposed, clean, and without any undesirable marks. From there, we’re able to do the protective coating after sandblasting.

Abrasive sandblasting can also achieve a decorative concrete look on its own. Doing so can expose aggregates underneath and look very stylish. At My Floor, we’ve got access to the most state-of-the-art equipment. Our machines propel very fine materials at a very high velocity. This will etch away at the surface to expose aggregates in the slab. Our equipment can expose aggregates at a depth of up to 20 mm or more. It’s an affordable way of achieving a polished look similar to a grind and seal system.

Hydroblasting

Hydroblasting is another one of our specialties at My Floor. It involves blasting high-pressure water onto surfaces. Doing so can remove paint, debris, chemicals, and more. It’s a safe and effective technique that’s good for surfaces, walls, and more! If you’ve got some old paint that you can’t get off your driveway in Brisbane, give us a call! We’ll bring out our cutting edge equipment to hydro blast away anything undesirable.

Critical Benefits of Abrasive Sandblasting

o by now, you should know about our sandblasting techniques at My Floor. Let’s take a look at the key benefits you’ll enjoy from our sandblasting services! They include:

-Sandblasting is affordable and time-efficient. Picture this as an example; you’d like a shiny concrete surface for your concrete columns in your bar in Brisbane. There are a few options here. First, you could pay a fortune to rip up the concrete, get rid of the debris, and add a new layer. It’ll take lots of money and time and involve you shutting your business down for a while. Option number two is you get it sandblasted! It’ll take FAR less time, won’t be expensive, and you won’t have to shut down for more than a day.

-Sandblasting can create highly visually appealing patterns and designs. This is an extremely affordable way to achieve a ritzy looking floor. Our stenciled sandblasted concrete is excellent for art galleries, homes, and more!

-Sandblasting can clean off the paint on driveways, and you can even use it on walls. If you’ve got a ton of rust, paint, and debris built up, sandblasting is the way to go!

-Its technology ensures that you won’t permanently damage a floor. You see, sandblasting uses compressed air to project abrasive material at the concrete. It’s a very controlled process that will never cause irreparable damage to your floor.

Trusted Past Clients

What Our Clients Say

We had My Floor in about 6 odd years ago to do a grind & seal. The floor has maintained it’s colouring, it’s durable, aesthetically pleasing, easy to clean and has shown no signs of wearing. I remember the first point of contact I had with My Floor, we were contacted back straight away, the process was easy and smooth , staff were friendly, and I believe it was reasonably priced. We’ve since been contacted with promotional deals for cleaning services and like before the customer service has been next to none. Will definitely be getting them back in future. Great job My Floor ????

Racheal Frayer

The MY Floors lads recently completed about 50 square metres of concrete mechanical floor polishing at my home in Newmarket. It was a very challenging job as it had to marry up with a floor they had done 6 years previously. It took about a week but the result is first class and durable forever. They kept going until my wife and I were totally satisfied with the finish. I would recommend My Floor to anyone who wants the real deal floor finish.
